So one of the frame bolt receptors on one of my carbons is stripped, and the things are riveted on there, so seems kind of impossible to replace.. are my skates completely finished? Anybody had this problem?
Drill it out.
5 years warranty on the carbon shell. They're bolted to the carbon, thus not removable and part of the shell. Meaning you get a free pair. PM spaniard.
Except you won't get them replaced, so buy a new pair.
just dremel the small rivet. make small slit in footbed material. remove stripped receptor. put new one in. attach frame. done.
put rubber cement/super glue/strong adhesive on your frame bolt. should hold until pressure is applied to loosen it
It is possible to replace the t-nuts but it'd be pretty complicated. I would email Oli or the general Conference address and see what they can do.
The conference : Making shitty parts on their skates that fall apart since 1998
Why the fuck would you skate those pieces of shit ?
Going Powerblading ?
i hate ya'll
My buddy had the exact same problem with his Cuff Bolt. Seeing how he isnt muppet, he politely made a little video showing the issues, emailed it on in to USD and after a few exchanged emails they sent him out a some brand new thrones (he wanted a change) with a whole grip of extra frames (slimlines), wheels, and parts, (souls, buckles, cuffs).
The industry isnt out to get anybody, they just need to be assured they arent sending 300$ to some dude who ripped his shit to pieces...
Just be polite and you shouldnt have a problem getting your issue solved.

Hahaha, my first pair of Carbon 2's came without a footbed. I politely sent Oli a message and he said he'd get one sent out to me. I never did. I guess that's where my gripes with The Conference started.
I thought they'd be able to cope with an easy job like that. Clearly not.
Also, when I had a pair of UC's that decored in a week, I made a post on here politely asking Oli how to get them replaced. He said go through the shop, so I did that. They're still waiting on the replacement wheels there. I'm just disillusioned about the whole conference customer support service.
what conference has to do with your striped t-nut? ok, They can send you new t-nut but you have to do it by yourself anyway. Or you can give your skates to skate service.. it can be repaired within 30 minutes so i think they should not charge you much.
